I like to go for the reality, I like to go for what's underneath. And I don't even judge it. But that isn't what all Hollywood movies are. That's an example where my success in Boys Don't Cry

Spent years developing "Silent Star", which would have been about one of early Hollywood's infamous scandals, the murder of silent film director and actor William Desmond Taylor
. By the end of 2003, Peirce had the film cast with Annette Bening
, Hugh Jackman
and Ben Kingsley
, only to balk when the studio asked her to make a $30-million movie for $20 million.
